APS Committee Nominations

Deadline: Friday, August 13, 2021

Selecting excellent leadership is essential to the continued health of any organization. We are now accepting nominations for new members of APS Committees. To be considered for a 2022 appointment, the candidate’s nomination must be submitted by August 13, 2021.

Submit a Nomination

As a volunteer-driven organization, we appreciate your nomination of dedicated individuals who will help direct the Society's progress and development. All committee terms run from January 1 through December 31.

Eligibility

Both the nominator and nominee(s) must be current APS members. Nominators are welcome to submit multiple prospects. All submissions will be reviewed by the APS Committee on Committees, who will draw up a slate of candidates for the President-Elect to appoint.

Guidelines

Please include one or two paragraphs outlining your nominee's career highlights and a few sentences on why they are qualified to serve on the respective committee. This information is very valuable in the process of selecting candidates. You are welcome to send additional materials (such as a CV) to APS Governance (governance@aps.org).

Please also consider whether your nominee meets the standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Guidelines on Ethics. Selected candidates will be required to fill out the APS Professional Conduct Disclosure Form prior to confirmation of their appointment.

Submit nominations through the online form, or email your nominee’s name and supporting documents to APS Governance.

The membership of APS is diverse and global, and the members of APS committees should reflect that diversity so that all are recognized for their impact on our community. Nominations of members belonging to groups traditionally underrepresented in physics, such as women, LGBT+ scientists, scientists who are Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other people of color, disabled scientists, and scientists from outside the United States are especially encouraged. Please also consider candidates from the industrial and private sectors, as well as early career scientists.

If you have any questions, please contact APS Corporate Secretary Jeanette Russo (governance@aps.org).

Nominees for and holders of APS Honors (prizes, awards, and fellowship) and official leadership positions are expected to meet standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Ethics Guidelines. Violations of these standards may disqualify people from consideration or lead to revocation of honors or removal from office.
